KNOWING THE DANGER OF ANGER ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_2112

When I write these posts “Just My Thoughts” or anything I write I usually do it with the goal to help someone, including myself.  Writing is an outlet, a way to express myself, that sometimes I am at a loss of words to speak.  

But when I write, I usually write from experience.  I mean who wants to listen to someone who does not understand, really what is happening, or who wants to listen to someone who may not even have the experience in some matters.  I do have that understanding in anger.  

After all, I am a warrior.  In many ways, I fight.  I fight, for what is right, and I fight for survival.  I fight, if I have to fight.  But in that I have also seen anger rise up in me.  I have seen a side of me, that has lost control.  And actually that is not a very pretty sight for anybody.  Because one can say, or do things, that are irreversible.  One can make some mistakes, that after the fact, will show no self-control.  And regret.  

Regret, is a terrible thing to have, even if you feel God forgives you.  Even if someone else forgives you.  Because if you have no self-control.  You see yourself, the error of not having self-control, and it will grieve you.  I have been grieved.  

And you need self-control.  You need to let the peace of God really rule your heart.  You cannot have that without Jesus.  Seriously.

I understand this.  I understand the anger in me any way.  I may not understand your anger.  But I understand, how hurt, pain, sorrow, no resolution to issues, can affect your spirit.  In anger.  Anger if not checked, can grow, and fester into a fire, that becomes out of control.  

So you need to know yourself.  But more then anything you need to know Jesus.  You need to know what He says about anger, and you need to know if you do not fix this even at a moment like this, where you are maybe at some peace, but you recognize the characteristic in you.  It could get out of control.  You want to be able to see it, stop it even now, and prevent anger.  

The thing with anger, and I have seen that in myself, is that something very trivial can set it off.  Spilled milk.  Seriously, self control has to see the symptoms, to stop it.  To give it to God.  

Yesterday, I was angry, for a moment.  Frustrated, and I cried out to God.  Please help me.  Because I have been dealing with something that has made me angry, for a very long time.  But I have been hiding it.  And yes, I have been dealing with it, but it could have gotten very out of control yesterday, but it did not.  I thank God.

I do not want it to be expressed in anger.  I want it to be expressed knowing God has an answer.  That peace, will rule my heart.  That I have control, because of who Christ is in me.  Just that cry out to God, helped me.  Because I realized, I need Him.  I surrendered myself to Him.  To His authority, to His ways.  To His truth, and love.  And the anger passed.  And to His glory, something happened, I got hope in this matter.  

I want to encourage you.  Because I know who Christ is.  And there is nothing too big, or too small for Him to handle.  He wants to help you.  But you have to let go of that pride, or anger, or self-will that says, I don’t need Him in this.  You do.  Believe me, you do.  We all need Him.  I don’t care who you think you are.  Those attributes you may have, or those characteristics that have been a part of any kind of success, you may have, can be gone.  So you need God. 

He is the only one who can change our hearts, our minds, our souls, our spirits.  Whatever it is friend, He can resolve it for you.  It may not even be in your time, but if you do your part, to begin the process, you will see the progress.  HE sees us, HE knows we need Him.  But we have to do the calling on Him.  He is the King of Kings, and Lord, of Lords.  He has the ability, we just have to submit to Him.  

I hope this helps someone.  I truly believe the Lord has me writing this for someone, who is so on the verge of exploding, that the consequences could be detrimental to your health, to your well being, to someone you love, or even your career.  Don’t let the devil have his way in this.  

Yes, we are all entitled to be angry, now and then, but in that anger, be careful it does not turn into sin.  Or you go to sleep with anger, there are reasons why God warns us not to do that.  

BE YE ANGRY AND SIN NOT:  LET NOT THE SUN GO DOWN UPON YOUR WRATH:  EPHESIANS 4:26.  

Give it to God, even now.  Give Him your anger, and sin not. He will help you.

 

Blessings, and love, in Christ,  Elena Ramirez

THE PROSPERITY MESSAGE, MESSES PEOPLE UP….

I have been a Christian for a long time now. And I just see how, one can miss it, by getting caught up in the “prosperity message.”

It is so deceiving, to try and search for God, for a financial miracle, but you don’t work on your heart, or your soul. You don’t make the priority, of Salvation, for you or others the goal.  Learning scripture.  Knowing Gods heart.  

I have seen people, who grasp onto that message, and even believing leaders, who are so full of it, that they have lost their focus on why Christ died on the cross for us.

They don’t see, how when Christ was on this earth, He was offended, by their selling of this or that, and He turned the tables on them, angrily.  In the temple.  

We are called to seek the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all things will be added.

BUT SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD, AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED UNTO YOU. MATTHEW 6:33. KING JAMES.

I see the fruit of it, from some that I even love dearly, but they do not make knowing God the priority, they are always dreaming, for this house, or that car, or that which they can compete with the Jones.

I see they support many of these leaders, who say very questionable things.

Even in this election, there are some who are so blinded by power, and wealth, that they think that someone, with this kind of prestige, makes them the answer to Americas problems. Yet they do not see the true fruit of a fake. A counterfeit. A mean spirited person.

So they lose focus on what God says. It does mess a person up.

And I can say this, as a testimony, because when I first started in ministry, I thought, everybody asked for money, and that was how you measured success in ministry.

Wrong.

God has a way of correcting us. Changing our hearts, and I am so glad He did mine. Greed, the prosperity message, is just an illusion to what the enemy can do to confuse a person.

You see, there is a lost world out there, and when people make the prosperity message, their goal, they miss out, in seeing what Gods goal and vision is.

He wants us to be saved. To grow, to know how precious our salvation is. To know His power, His sovereignty, and to reach out for the lost. To reach for the Kingdom for others, and their salvation. To see with hearts, love.

Its just sad, I guess, its just a sign of the times.

But it is not to late, to repent, to stop and see, the goal.

You know, God is not blind to many of us who are in need of a financial miracle, but He works on our hearts first. He corrects us. If we do not receive this correction, we are, our own worst enemy.

God can change things. If only we would work for the Kingdom, for His goal, then He would bless many of us. Our businesses, would become His business, to bless.

But till then, just look at the fruit. It is rotten, it is not what God intended.

The Prosperity message, does mess up people.

In Christ,

Elena

But let it be the hidden man of the heart in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price I Peter 3:4.

More then ever, it seems that “subliminal” messages, are the norm.  But what it reveals, is what is in the heart of the messenger.  The giver of the thought….

They are every where.  We are inundated with messages, thoughts, inspiration, advertising, and agendas….

Our hearts, are like opened, or closed doors.  

And so as a Christian, you want to keep yourself holy in the sight of God.  Hard to do in this world we live in.  Some things just desensitize us and so you become immune, to many things that may come your way.  

Yet, you need to protect your spirit.

I have not heard a message on this, but being led by the Holy Spirit, I agree, and see the importance of this as I write.

Scripture tells us, we worship God in spirit and truth.  

God is a spirit:  and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.  John 4:24.  

So what spirits, or spirit, are you led by?  For God sees this in truth.

How do we get to that place in holiness, in obedience to what Christ has done for us, as we are cleansed in our spirits, to now be a vessel, an instrument of Christ?  

We have to see, we must protect our spirits.  By that which we allow.  By either reading, watching television, friends that we choose, and yes even in the spiritual entities of the church we attend.  

For this very reason, I long for a pure and holy word, so this is why I use a King James bible.  But what about the church you attend?  Or the voices  you listen to?  Even in the counsel you ask for?  

These “subliminal” messages, you receive, will shape you, will build you, or destroy you.  So you need discernment.  To know.  This is wisdom.  To know and see through the intent, and agenda, of the messenger, what is right.  What is wrong.  

A subliminal message, will hint at the agenda.  It will not come to the point, specifically, yet you get the drift of it.  You can see, either something is left out, or denied, quietly.  Yet it will make you think.  It will make you wonder, it will entice you, if you let it.   The dictionary, tells us, that it will “influence your mind in such a way that you do not notice.” 

It is as if it is a seed, and if you water it, nourish it, it will grow.  This can be sin.  This can be holiness.  You see, it just depends what seed you allow to grow in your spirit.  To determine the “fruit” of your tree.  

The holy word of God, my King James bible, tells us what Christ said.  And He said, do not let any man steal your crown.  He said, beware of wolves in sheeps clothing.  He said, beware the enemy, comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  He told us the enemy is a deceiver.  He has paid the price, for our holiness, but are we so naive, like sheep, that we can be led away by a “subliminal” thought?

They are there these thoughts.  That come to us.

I just saw one, on a paid commercial on television, where a couple was having a discussion, and it was over a piece of candy.  But the difference was she was in bed, with the candy.  And I just thought, the subliminal message to any child, would be to think its o.k. to be in bed with candy.

And where are the strong moral, messages?  That teach integrity, and honor, and that which is right in the sight of God?  They may be gone, in society, but if you are a Christian you have a responsibility to be a message, that does give honor to God.

That is someone, who must live life in honor of God, for what Christ did.  So what subliminal message, do people see in you?  I do believe we do have to ask that.

Because we already know God does see the intentions of our hearts….

Is your heart open to the messages, that can deceive?  Or do you guard your heart….

And the man said unto me, Son of man, behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears, and set thine heart upon all that I shew thee: for to the intent that I might shew them unto thee art thou brought hither:  delcare all that thou seest to the house of Israel.  Ezekiel 40:4.

This message, was paid for in full, by the sacrifice of Christ.

Blessings, my friends, as our hearts ponder on this.

I write this, from a prompting of God.  Advice.  How I pray you see my heart in this.  To please God.  To help you grow.  And obedient, to God, I want to share some of the things that have helped me, that have given me discernment.  To know the difference between good and evil.  But I always seek the good from God.  For His mercy has been so good to me.  That, mercy has inspired me, and taught me the ways of God.  And this is the principal thing to do, is to seek His wisdom.  As the great Proverbs instruct us.

WISDOM IS THE PRINCIPAL THING:  THEREFORE GET WISDOM AND WITH ALL THY GETTING GET UNDERSTANDING.   PROVERBS 4:7

For there are things we may do, and we do not understand always. And we could sin. The thing is never to give the enemy a legal right to attack us.

So we stay close to Jesus. We repent even daily, being humble. Take care dear hearts. Let us seek God. Let us seek His Holy word. That is holy from the King James Bible. That is not corrupted.  So with instruction, please consider this to grow:

1.   Get a good King James Bible.  Read it daily.  But I do recommend a good daily Bible plan.  I read mine from my Bible app.  (Holy Bible app. It is a brown logo, and has lots of capabilities.)

Even if it is just one verse.  Start your day with Gods Holy word.  No ifs’s, buts or compromise in this.  Honor God in this!

I have written many posts on this, and to just get the point, any other bible version is compromised, is no longer holy, or anointed.  The many scriptures attest to this, do not change Gods holy word.  So don’t use anything that has been changed.  So get a King James Bible, that has been established for over 400 years.

2.  Begin writing scriptures, King James Scriptures sharing them on social media, and for reference.  You want to grow.  This imparts truth to the spirit not only for you, but for someone else.  You might be the only Bible someone sees, so you want to inspire someone to know Gods truth as well.  You can reach someone that perhaps, I cannot, or is family, friends, etc.  This is not judging them, this is seeing their fruit, and knowing they need God.  And you could be just that person God is calling to use.  Gods word is a double edged “sword”  You do not want a rubber sword, so this is very IMPORTANT!  Write it, journal it, share it…Memorize it.  

We are to get the holy word of God.  And scripture references it as “sincere” milk.

AS NEWBORN BABES, DESIRE THE SINCERE MILK OF THE WORD, THAT YE MAY GROW THEREBY.  I PETER 2:2.  

You want to start pouring the word of God into your spirit, as milk, so you can grow.  Perhaps you are a baby Christian.  Or just still trying to grow.  But you need to always have the goal of growing.  And the Holy word of God, is the only way to do that with prayer.

So you can start having discernment.  So you can receive understanding, to gain wisdom.  This is the only true way.  Then when able from growth it turns into “Meat.”  So you can bear it.  Let these scriptures minister to you.

AND I BRETHREN, COULD NOT SPEAK UNTO YOU AS UNTO SPIRITUAL, BUT AS UNTO CARNAL, EVEN AS UNTO BABES IN CHRIST.  I HAVE FED YOU WITH MILK,AND NOT WITH MEAT:  FOR HITHERTO YE WERE NOT ABLE TO BEAR IT, NEITHER YET NOW ARE YE ABLE.  I Corinthians 3:2-3.

I have been writing scriptures for years, in all my writings to build a foundation for a thought, and now whenever I need a word, I may not always remember the scripture.  But I remember the “Key” word, of Gods holy word.  And with technology as it is, there is no excuse to copy and paste word, to hear it, to search it.  So I do recommend getting a good Bible app.  And applying it to your computer, or Ipad, etc.    

Then share scripture.  Do it daily.  Don’t get lazy in this.  You want to grow.  To not do this is actually a disservice to yourself.  You will get spiritually weak without Gods Holy word.  It is a hedge of protection.  But to God dear friends this is what He has given us.  This is not a lecture.  But, if we love, God we do every thing we can to understand Him.  

We need this, even to defend ourselves. For we do not fight against flesh and blood, but spiritualities, in high places.

FOR WE WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES, AGAINST POWERS, AGAINST THE RULES OF THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD, AGAINST SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES.  EPHESIANS 6:12 

For in this world, there is darkness.  We need to bring light.  We need to be able to discern.  We need to be able to understand Gods ways.  No, we cannot understand everything about God, and we never will.  

But we try to please Him, in this life He has given us.  And we are held accountable.  We are warned.  This is not judging anyone.  This is warning with love, to know, according to scripture we will stand before God.  

AND I SAW THE DEAD, SMALL AND GREAT, STAND BEFORE GOD: AND THE BOOKS WERE OPENED:  AND ANOTHER BOOK WAS OPENED, WHICH IS THE BOOK OF LIFE:  AND THE DEAD WERE JUDGED OUT OF THOSE THINGS WHICH WERE WRITTEN IN THE BOOKS, ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS.  Revelation 20:12.

3.  So fear God.  This is the most healthiest thing to protect your soul.  And this with great reverence, and yes of fear of God, I plead with you.  To grow.  To remember that fear of God.  We need to change.  We need to grow.  We cannot stay in that place of being passive, and naive.  For we will be judged.  But we must be careful.  We must seek God, and this works.  

I can write on more and more about this.  But there is not enough space on this page, but you must seek wisdom, and God, and this will do it.  With prayer, with a heart to hear from God.

4.  Be careful of Pride.  Be careful of being self righteous.  That righteousness only belongs by what Christ did.  For you and me.  Be Humble, with one another, know again, there are some things we are not anointed to do, or accomplish.  Be careful of people who do not display this.   

5.  Test the spirits, to see if they are love, of Christ.  And again, be careful who you listen to.  If the bible they use is not holy King James Based.  That anointing can be poured down, and you don’t want to receive corrupted word in your spirit.

6.  Do not compromise your walk with Christ.  For money, for pleasures, for sin.  Be ever so careful.  The more we grow in Christ, we get stronger. And this is the goal.  You have authority over your body, and you are called to mortify sin in your body, by Christ.  So it will not have dominion over you.  Remember, those that go after the flesh, will not be Christs.  Read Romans 8 from the King James.  He will deliver you from temptation if you submit to Him.  Plead the blood of Jesus, in everything. I know…..

7.  Put on the armor of God.  I think we may forget about this.  But being submissive to God.  Resisting the enemy, with the armor, can do so much for us.  Read Ephesians 6.  From the King James.  You want victories.  So watch the words you speak as well.  

You have power of life and death in your tongue.  Proverbs 18:21.  Be strong in the Lord.  You are not weak, if you daily take your spiritual food, from God.  This is why I go on and on, about it being King James word, its not junk food.  It brings light and life, and all blessings.  

And as I close, seek the Kingdom of God, and all things will be added unto you.  Matthew 6:33.  Know that Christ is the way the truth, and life.  Read John 14:6.  And only Him. Warn others that this is so important.  Know it in your own heart.  Be careful of religion, and the doctrine that is shared from religion.  BE CAREFUL NOT TO HAVE IDOLS!  GOD IS A JEALOUS GOD!  Be careful not to play with other spiritual entities as well!  This also gets God very jealous.  And there is wrath and curses in these things.  BE CAREFUL!

Let us love one another. Let us try with all our being to please God. Let us remember the sacrifice of Christ with great reverence, to quicken our spirits. So we do not sin, so we do not offend. So we do not lose our blessings. And yes to even restore our hearts, and blessings. Being near Jesus, and knowing Him, and His love, is always the great protector.  He is the great Shepherd.  

But we cannot be disobedient in not wanting to grow.  It is a disservice to God.  For His love is so great.   These are just things I have learned, my friend, as advice to help you grow as a Christian, but I will always direct you to Gods Holy word, the King James Bible.  

For God is love.  And there is no greater love.  Hope this helps.  Much love, praying for you to grow!  For I love you, greatly.  Why?  Because Jesus loves you.

CHRISTMAS EVE EVE ~ BEN HUR MOVIE INSPIRATION ~ BY CHRISTIAN AUTHOR ELENA RAMIREZ


I watched Ben-Hur last night. After the news reports, and just chaos, from crowds, rude people, and just needing quietness, I thought I need to watch something inspiring. It did not let me down. I noticed, even at that time the people of God, the Jews, were oppressed. By the Romans.

Friendships were divided, because of power, and Judah, played by Charlton Heston, suffered greatly, at the hand of a friend. A friend, who wanted power, now as a Roman soldier, and who forgot the ties they had made as children. He actually had Judah imprisoned, and his sister, and mother, for something that was really an accident. And I won’t go into all the details of the movie, but it was sad, that Judah suffered.

At one point, he wanted to die. Because of the abuse he received, and at His lowest point, thirsty, and almost dying, Jesus came to him, and gave him water, after others had denied him water. When the guards saw that Jesus had defied their orders to give him water all they could do was just look at Jesus. And they could not come against Him. You did not see Jesus’s face in this movie, but it was all so very symbolic, in the power He has. Judah survived, but knew he had met someone who touched his life.

Judah found great favor with another Roman who actually adopted him, and loved him, because he saved his life. And then went back home to Jerusalem, and searched for his mother and sister, and yes to find vengeance on the friend, who deceived him, betrayed him, and hurt his family. There was a great race, with chariots, and the friend, now enemy of Judah, was injured. Yet, he would not die, till he spoke to Judah, but his words were not of a sorry or contrite heart for doing what he did. Instead he told him only that his sister and mother were alive.

The mother and sister, were imprisoned, and through it became lepers. Judah thought they were dead. But the love of his life, was protecting him from the truth, that they were alive, and when he discovered this truth, he was angry. But went to go and get them, they took them to search for the great person Christ was back to Jerusalem. But Christ was on trial, andbeing crucified.

Charlton Hestons character, was so moved by Christ again, for this time, it was he who gave Christ water. As Christ carried His cross for us. And again, we did not see the face of Christ…..but we can only imagine.

At the end of the movie, the sister, and mother were healed of their leprosy, and to conclude just what it did for me to see this, is that Christ teaches us. Through our heartaches, through our sorrows, through our loss of friends, that I can even relate to, if we seek Him, we are healed. Our souls can be healed, our hearts, our anger, our bitterness….and we can be used by God. We can give water to someone hurting, we can can quench the thirst, by Christ.

Yes it was symbolic to me, this movie when it started, showed the birth of Christ, and showed that wise men still seek Him, and it ended with the death of Christ, With healings, restoration, and a sense, that God and only God can heal us.

I pray, we all have the sweet peace, and joy of the true Christmas spirit.

I needed to watch something that inspired me. Last night, I admit, with the news I felt sad, and troubled. I am a Christian I can be strong, but I am also human, and I also see, how much our world needs Christ. I hope we all get the true message of Christmas in our hearts, all year long, and until Christ returns. To restore our souls.

Blessings, just some thoughts today, this Christmas eve.

Merry Christmas……Elena Ramirez

Sometimes, you have to look and see what makes a good friend.  And sometimes, you have to understand, good friends, need to be loved and appreciated.  Christ does that for me, as my greatest friend.

I know His sacrifice on the cross, and the beatings He took for me, and to pay the penalty of my sins, reminds me, how great a friend He is.

So how can I show Christ, my love, and that I appreciate, His great sacrifice?

It is the Christmas season right now.  And I cannot explain it, but I feel something in the spiritual realm even in my own growth, and understanding, in gratitude, that I just want to stop, and concentrate on Christ more this season.

I get sad, because you know we all like nice things, but the world, people, even other Christians, seem to forget about what this season is all about.  The reason for the season.  And its Jesus!

Sometimes, growth, circumstances, poverty, lack, and yes even an abundance, can make you stop and see, and say.  Is this what it really is all about?

I mean, we can really get caught up in the ways of the world.  We can get caught up, in material things.  The lack of, or the abundance.  Where is the balance?

Right now, I just want to be a good friend to Christ.  More then ever.  I am a Christian, who has been a Christian for a few years now.  And when I made the decision, to give it my all to Christ, I have not turned back.  Yet, daily, I have to work on my relationship with Him.

So, as I ponder on this time of season, and I deal with issues of life, in my own personal life, my families, and I see the world, and I see issues, politically as well, and I see people, and how they feel.  Well, I can get my eyes off of Christ.

And you know, I am just trying to sort it out, even as I write, because life is important.  What you do with your life is important.  How you look at life, and how you deal with situations.  I am not perfect far from it.  But being the old girl that I am now…..I can easily recall, how just searching for God, through Christ, has made a difference for me.  There are so many things though, that I have not accomplished, or done, or been able to do, that can make me stumble.  I don’t want to stumble.

So, I am just sorting my feelings out here, and just knowing how much I need to seek God more so.  So many have the outlook, that you just receive your salvation, and thats it.  You are safe.  But, I don’t see it like that.  I take the scriptures to heart, when it says, work out your salvation with trembling and fear.  I take to heart, that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.  I take to heart….

That I have my part in it.  I have to discipline myself sometimes, I have to bring it all to the obedience of Christ.

And maybe you can relate to this, maybe not.  But I actually get jealous, and angry for God, when people deny Him.  When they say terrible things about God, when they mock Him.  When they ignore Him……So I take this to heart….

I have to….right now I have to.  I am not sure what I am feeling.  Maybe it is sorrow, we did have a death in our family.  Maybe it is a sense, that nothing is forever, unless it is with God.  I am sad, this family member was so young.  Why did it have to happen?

But even through this I know the answer is to press into God more! Not less, I can never pull back in who I am in Christ.  Even if I am sad.  Even if I cannot control my own opportunities.  I know God can.  So, I just want to press into God more.

A friend asked, recently, when do you feel more alive? (sweet Narita, maybe she will read this)  And my answer was:  In all honesty, when I am close to God!  And that is the ultimate truth for me, when I am.  He is the way, the truth and the life.  I know that!  And I know what life was like without Him.  That was not life.  That was being like the walking dead.  So no, I will not pull back, no matter what I am feeling.  Because He fills my cup with life, in Him, as I live move, and have my being.

I don’t know all the answers.  And I do not pretend to know.  But I just sense right now, how precious life is, and in Christ.  I don’t know you, or your situation.  I don’t know what you are feeling, or going through.  But, I do know there is a God.  I know it with all my being.  More so, then I did yesterday.  You see, everyday I have to search for God.  And every day, I find Him, when I search.

Today is no different.  Just that I find Him, in different ways.

His love, compels me to search.  And I don’t want to be legalistic.  But, I know there are ways, to reach Him, according to His excellence.  I suppose this is one other reason why I am adamant about using only a King James bible.  Purity, preservation, something about going back to the old way of doing something, opposed to modern techniques, or technology.  Seeking God.  By prayer, the greatest way of communicating to a King.  My friend, my Lord, my savior.

Jesus, is my greatest friend.  And I just have a sense, more then ever, how precious His friendship is to me.  But I have my part…..

And I guess, this is just a little rant of my own, to sort it all out, but I think of who God is, and His patience.  I also see, what His word says, His warnings.  His anger, as well, and I see how history even in the word of God, tells us, who God is, and what He expects.  The fear of God is healthy for a soul.

I don’t know, I just want to grow, but I want to do it Gods way.  And what good is life, if we don’t grow, in who the creator intended us to be?  Its life, lets live it for His glory.  Or what counts?  I just want to make a difference.  In my own life, and yes in others.  But we have to see, we have to know, we have to try…..

TO HIM WHO ALONE DOETH GREAT WONDERS: FOR HIS MERCY ENDURETH FOREVER.  Psalm 137:4

Just a thought today, Elena Ramirez  Merry Christmas….

I call it a spirit of depression, because it is.  And when you understand, why things come and happen, you can fight it effectively.  You can get to the root of the problem.  

I address, this in view of what has happened recently, to the beloved, Mr. Williams.  And my disclaimer is this, for I do not know what “demons he dealt with”.  But there is one name greater then any demon, and that is Jesus Christ.  But I do understand the evil of it, and I will explain further.  

But I do so carefully, because as I see how it took the life of this beloved man, I am careful, because one never, ever knows what someone is going through, or has gone through.  This is one reason, we should always be sharing the gospel, and our own testimonies, because Jesus has made a difference in our lives.  And, this is why we must offer love to one another, as Christ commanded, and yes be very careful with judging.  Please I repeat, be careful, how you judge a matter or a person.  

And I bring it up, because I have dealt with depression in my life.  In my own life, I have seen it, and yes even in my mothers.  And I saw she never did overcome it, sadly, even to her, death.  For her depression, made her so angry, that she died sad, angry, and miserable.

And I am opening myself in some ways, yet, I am keeping a sense of privacy, as I express this, because I also guard myself.  

But depression, does come from the pit of hell.  We do deal with demons.  And when someone says that, it is not far from truth, because it is truth.  And if people could understand it, as a spirit first, then you can combat it.  You see, the enemy the devil, comes to kill, steal and destroy, and if he can do that, he will win.  Jesus, knew, that the enemy came to hurt us, in all aspects of our life, so Christ became the penalty of sin, to take the “legal” right from the devil.  But the devil will still try and hurt us, so we have to know how to take the word of God, and we have to know how to fight a good fight of faith, by giving it to Jesus.  

What has worked for me, and again this is my disclaimer, but if one does have it, they can fight it.  By prayer, yes, even fasting, and praising God.  You see, when we seek God, who is a “spirit” and we worship Him, in spirit and truth, we can have a weapon, to fight the enemy.  Gods enemy hates praise.  He hates it, so when we praise God, and I say doing this openly, and as often as possible, God enters into the situation, and wards the devil away and takes the spirit of heaviness, and depression from us.  

Joy, is replaced with a sense of trust in God, and the victory is ours.  The demons leave.  

I have learned, and I know, even many of my friends see, I praise God often, but this is my main weapon against the enemy.  Prayer and praise to God.  I give glory to God, in anything, because I do battle depression.  

I have dealt with something, most of my life.  And I still have hope God will rectify this situation.  I know it needs His hand to make a way, in the provision of it.  But what keeps me sane, balanced, and yes joyful, is that my commitment is to Him, with all my being.  With all that I can, I pray, praise Him, give Him glory and honor.  Maybe now some can understand, why I do it so often.  

You see, we have power of life and death in our tongues.  Read Proverbs 18:21  King James.  When we openly speak, and articulate praise to God, this principle goes in effect, and the victory is ours.  I speak this, because it has worked for me.  Friends, the “wisdom skill” is this.  To avoid depression, speak, and give God glory, as you pray.  I know to the atheist, to the unbeliever, this is nonsense.  

But to those who believe, the foolishness of this brings the power of God.  I don’t care what the atheist, or non-believer thinks.  This is my saving grace by Jesus Christ.  Knowing Gods Holy word, my King James Bible, is my weapon, my sword of truth, and I trust it with all my being.  I daily take Gods word, for strength, and understanding.  To know God, to know what pleases Him, and as I do, I find the armor of God is placed on my heart to protect me, with love, for He is love.  It protects my mind, no depression is not what I have, as I seek God, and praise Him, with all my being.  So yes, I speak glory to God!  

Friend, this is a very deep, and profound thing, but if you have problems yes try this, I also recommend you get good spiritual counseling, that is King James Biblically sound, and that you do not walk in the valley of the shadow of death alone.  So yes, find help!  Pastors, friends, in Christ, and Christian counseling, etc.  

Do not give into the temptation to commit suicide.  Do not!  This is a permanent solution to a problem that can be rectified by Jesus.   This is my wisdom key for you, I pray, you find peace, for this is what Christ has promised.  I do understand, you, and  I know sometimes, you feel there is no hope.  But there is.  Jesus is that hope.  

I understood this, that is why I wrote my two books, How To Have Faith, and Behavioral Curses That Change with Jesus.  I understand.  I want to help you, even in this brief post.  But go to God, go to Him, cry repent, and seek Him, and yes repentance is good for the soul, it is a cleansing.  There is so much more, but Jesus is that cure for depression.  Much love, Jesus I adore you!  And thank you for saving me, and showing me a better way.  

God bless you friends, may this Wisdom Skill bring you hope….Elena Ramirez
